Wolves are apparently in talks to sign Andre Silva for £27 million this summer ahead of their Premier League campaign.
Calciomercato are claiming that talks are underway between Jorge Mendes and the forward and so we might just see this go through before too long.
How do our writers see it, though? Let’s have a look…
It’s good value and Wolves need to be tying it up.
If Silva has a good World Cup, his price-tag could soar, so completing a deal as soon as possible is going to be on Wolves’ agenda.
This is a huge risk, especially at this price.
There is no doubt that Silva has potential and can score goals if he is in form but after a poor season with AC Milan, he may struggle to adapt to English football as quickly as Wolves will need.
If Wolves could drive the price down or secure a loan deal, he could be a shrewd addition, though.
Silva is a talented player, there is no doubt about that.
However, his poor spell at AC Milan makes £27 million seem a little bit steep for him even if he does have a bright future ahead of him.
Wolves have taken risks before, though, which have paid off substantially, so this could very easily go the same way.
It’s a good deal for all parties.
Wolves get a highly-rated youngster who has the potential to make that fee look a bargain, whilst AC Milan get a fair chunk of their money back on a player who doesn’t start.
Wolves will want to sort a deal ASAP as a good World Cup could see that figure rise.
